Hi I’m Cynthia and welcome back to my channel so on today’s video I’m going to walk you through how to write on your cookies without a projector I get this question a lot if it’s possible to write on your cookies without a projector or without any kind of transfers and it is here’s a little sneak peek and let’s get right into the video first I’m going to start by sharing with you where I grab my font or my phrases from the website is da font calm this is how the website .
Best Projector For Cookie Decorating
looks when you arrive to it I always like to go to the script section and usually I pick calligraphy or handwritten and here are a few of the fonts and if you go through the pages you’ll see many different fonts I’m first I’m going to just choose a random font and test it out and see if I like it so we’re going to write at the top or it’s a custom preview and .
you’re going to write your word you can always change the sizing there I usually just choose medium and then you’re going to hit submit since I didn’t like the way that this font look I am going to go back and look for a new font the font that I ended up choosing is called real Ohio and it’s found in the script section of this website and as soon as you .
select your font you’re going to do the same thing that we did earlier we’re going to custom preview and I’m going to type in the word mom and then hit submit once I have my preview and I’m happy with it I am going to take a screenshot and please remember that I am using a Mac but if you are using a PC it would be the same process now .
we are going to make sure that we have downloaded the app called camera lucida I am going to leave a little picture of how the app looks here once the app is downloaded here is how it looks and then if you go down to the bottom left you’re going to be able to see the screenshot we took we’re going to select it and then here is where we’re going to be .
able to adjust it so my cookie is down there and I’m going to just adjust my cookie to where I want it and just in case you want to move the direction that bottom right button is to switch the direction horizontal vertical positioning of your wording so as you can see here when you kind of make it smaller when you squish it with your fingers the image turns transparent so you can see where you’re placing it I am happy with the placement there so I’m going to select .
the middle button which is the pencil and this lets you kind of trap make it a little bit more transparent so you can actually see your cookie and now that our image is transparent we can also pinch out our screen to kind of make our cookie and our image a little bit closer and I do have to admit this next part is a little bit hard but it does get a little bit take a little bit getting used to but once you get the hang of it it’s all good and I am using a black food coloring .
marker so basically what you have to do here is you have to look on the screen to see what you’re actually doing so you can’t look at your cookie and write on your pencil because we have to remember that the image is on the screen of our phone I hope that makes sense I did practice a few times before I actually got an image that I was happy with so just know that it does take a little bit of practicing but it’s definitely worth the $6.99 if you don’t want to spend a .
hundred and fifty dollars for a projector another thing to remember is that it doesn’t have to be perfect since I am going to add icing so I’m actually good just going to trace it and then trace the trace to part with actual royal icing so it doesn’t have to be perfect it’s kind of just like a roadmap and another thing I did find it easier if you move in one .
motion so the less breaks you take the easier the tracing is I hope that makes sense but I’ll let you guys watch what I’m doing here so you can kind of get the sense of what I’m talking about and now here’s how my finished will know my finish but how my traced cookie looks it looks a little bit wonky it looks a little bit wobbly but that’s totally ok because I’m actually going to go over that with actual royal icing to trace the wording on my cookies I will be using a .
thick consistency royal icing I did film a video a few weeks ago so I’m going to leave the link down below and hopefully I remember to leave a card at the top so that you can go watch that video sometimes when using the consistency royal icing I do like to use a scribe so that I can kind of smooth out a little bit of the icing it doesn’t always work but sometimes it does if you’re patient next I’m going to add a few finishing touches so I have a .
few pre-made royal icing flowers here and I did choose this one so I’m going to apply a little bit of ro icing on the back and I’m going to place it right on that blank space of my cookie to decorate the rest I am going to use a little bit of stiff royal icing in green and I’m going to just add a little bit of leaves and a little bit of greenery around the cookie .
and for my final finishing touch I did dilute a little bit of divine specialties gold highlighter with a little bit of Everclear and I made it into a paste and I’m going to paint over my wording just to make it a little bit prettier this is totally optional you don’t have to do this but I just think it makes it look a little bit nicer here’s how I finished cookie look I am really happy with it and actually it’s a lot easier after you practice a lot to use this app versus having to .
